If I am not mistaken, I have that knuckle in my M03.
Give it a try and let us know how it comes out.

Just got hold of a Montero Wheelie. Which would be a easier driver figure to fit . . . WR02 or the V W T2 driver?

Awfully quiet in here . . . . Willy's in hibernation?

Anyway, just wanted to share some photos of my finished project . . .

Working foglights, headlights, signal lights and tailights.

Like his dog?

I like your videos magic. The backdrop is a definite plus. What's the name of that ski resort in Austria?
Must be nice to just be able to drive or ride a train and be in another wonderful country in a few hours.
I like long distance driving myself. Hope to be able to tour Europe someday.
So where's Willy off to next?

Update from Tamiya America:
RC Farm King (Wheelie) - WR-02


The Farm King is an R/C assembly kit based on the popular WR-02 2WD platform.



The newly designed tractor body shell is a reproduction of a farm vehicle often seen in farms across the U.S.A.

No pictures yet.
